QLD/NT Regional Chaplains

Our Network is supported by a fantastic group of Regional Chaplains located in each of the designated regions in QLD and the NT. Our Regional Chaplains are all active in Chaplaincy ministry and they are there to provide face to face support and encouragement to each of our Network Members.

If you haven’t been in contact with your Regional Chaplain in recent times, why not send them a quick email and connect!

They would love to hear from you; to join with you in celebrating the joys of chaplaincy ministry as well as providing any support needed.
